Peripherals: How to tackle Power Surge On Hub Port?
Power Surge On Hub Port
It said something about upgrading my BIOS. How do I do that??
You can find BIOS updates at the motherboard or computer manufacturer's site.
From what I read in those links, I think the problem is your drive is drawing too much power. I would consider getting a powered usb hub and connect the drive to that.
Where can I find one of those I heard updating your BIOS can cause problems so I'm not doing that.
You can get them in many places; online at sites like amazon or newegg, or in computers stores. Just make sure that it is a powered hub.
